Lancaster Archery Academy September Newsletter

The days are definitely shorter now, and some mornings are feeling a bit nippy.

Bowhunters are starting to hit the woods, mountains and prairies across North America, launching a trend that is only going to increase over the coming weeks.

Despite the changing of the seasons and the start of the school year, the Academy is still introducing new archers to the sport and instructing veteran archers on how to improve their game. If either of those sound like you, come on in and spend some time with us this month.



We’ve got multiple, 6-week classes starting soon in our Experience Archery, and Intermediate Archery courses. Listed below are the start dates and class times.
